Beta #4: on ectopic watch

Today’s beta results are 291.

This is NOT looking good. This gives us a doubling time of 81 hours. My last doubling time was 36.6 hours.

As of right now, I’m on watch for an ectopic pregnancy. My nurse said if I experience any one-sided cramping that I need to go directly to the emergency room.

Beta #5 is Friday.

I pray for the strength to make it through this.

  1. I’ve been worried about you, I was afraid things might go this way…..because your numbers looked so similar to mine. Lindsey, my heart is breaking for you! I’m beyond sorry….and I just wish there was something I could do or say to help you through this time. I will continue to pray for you and your husband. This is all just so unfair. Please feel free to reach out to me if you want to talk, vent, cry, scream, WHATEVER! I’m here! Xoxo


  2. I am so incredibly sorry that you are in this position. I am wishing you ever ounce of strength in the world to get through the waiting game and the anxiety of all of this. And, I will keep hoping for your miracle, even if the odds are against you.


  3. Everyone I log in, you blog is the first one I go to. I want this to work for you more than you know. You have been such a huge inspiration for me and I am very thankful for that. I wish there was something I could do.


  4. Oh no. Hon, I’m so sorry to hear this. I praying so hard everything is okay and the numbers are just off. Are all these blood draws being done at the same lab? When will the schedule you in for an ultrasound?


  5. Oh no! No, just no. This should NOT be happening. First of all, how does an IVF embryo placed the the uterus even get in the tubes? I know it happens sometimes, but it makes no sense to me. I am so sorry. I will be praying that things turnaround. Sending peace, comfort and hope to you.


  6. I am so sorry! I truly hoped things were turning around. I will keep praying, though! I know it is so hard to go through all this…my heart aches for your suffering. In my thoughts and prayers. xoxo


  7. Hi Lebast this Sandra from the forum. I am following your blog and I am so sorry to read this. I was so happy when your beta went up. Hopefully it’s just slow rising. They say you have lower hcg level when it’sa boy. I pray Iit’s not so.


  8. Oh no, I am so sorry your numbers aren’t just doing what they are supposed to! First Jen and now possibly you…praying for a good outcome and for strength and comfort for you and your husband while you are in this waiting game. Sending Big Hugs your way!!!


  9. oh man! This is not what I was hoping to read tonight. :/ I’m praying for you sugars!! Also…I am a bit confused…how does it become ectopic if it was placed in the uterus? I didn’t realize this was a possibility :/ Love ya! xo
